It’s like women in movies has taken a total role reversal in movies today. Throughout the movie she shows how she don’t listen to no one and just does her own thing because she knows that taking, the character Michael, off the streets is the right thing to do, even though he is black and is kind of shady at first. She has her husband asking her why she is letting this stranger in our house when you don’t even what he is going to do, and she doesn’t see him doing anything wrong. In the older days the husband would have been like no this boy will not stay in my house. If Sean tried saying this to Leigh he would of probably been sleeping on the couch.
On top of pleading not guilty, he refused the advice of the attorney presented to him to plead insanity and blame it on black rage. The attorney tried to convince Ferguson that he would be likely to win if he plead not guilty on the basis of insanity and black rage which came from the suppression of African Americans in a white society. He refused to plead insanity and repeatedly told the court that he was sane- although he refused psychiatric analysis as well. He fired his attorney, shortly after he was granted him, and refused his right to be represented in the court of law, his right as an American citizen protected under the fourteenth amendment. This is what made this court case so interesting.

Premier John Brumby is big in the spotlight at the moment after announcing that there will be a ban on entering a nightclub, pub or bar from 2am onwards.

Without Scrutiny Shirley Jackson’s intention in writing “The Lottery” is, in her own words, “to shock the story’s readers with a graphic demonstration of the pointless violence and general inhumanity in their own lives” (263). It is painfully clear that this small village of approximately three hundred convey the lack of respect for oneself, family and friends. Because the town is so small, the community is closely connected. Tragically, on June 27th, their history together is meaningless. In “The Lottery,” Jackson is suggesting that people conform to the demands of society without scrutiny.
Creative Writing March 26, 2012 Response Journal “Hoodies on the Hill,” a group of Capitol Hill staffers, also rally in support of Martin.” Many people would ask the question, “Are teens in general categorized by their attire?” In my opinion, no one should be judged on what they wear.

Lee also added that white viewers will generally summarize the movie as a tale of the destruction of a local business, while black viewers
Panel affirms immorality of capital punishment Marisa Iati | Thursday, April 19, 2012 Two Notre Dame professors and a retired local priest asserted capital punishment is immoral at a Wednesday panel discussion. Adjunct Instructor of Writing and Rhetoric Ed Kelly said he opposes the death penalty for three reasons. “First of all, there are systems of privilege and oppression in place in this country that I think make it virtually impossible for the death penalty to be applied fairly and justly,” he said. “Consequently, we have many people of color and many, many poor people who find themselves on death row, and that’s unfair.” Kelly said he believes it is impossible to combat violence with violence, and that state-sanctioned violence is
